On April 19, 1995, Oklahoma City fell victim to the worst act of domestic terrorism the United States has ever experienced on its own soil — as did the lives of 168 men, women and children.
Dr. Johnny Kirk, assistant professor of psychology at Northeastern State University, witnessed the horrors and damages of the Murrah Building bombing. Now, 22 years later, the images of what he saw are like pictures in his head. A Tulsa firefighter at the time, Kirk arrived at the bombing site in the early morning hours of the following day. The tree now known as the Survivor Tree was still burning, and cars were among its branches.
